  1. Can you send me a copy of the Metro Orange Line Extension Art Guide? I tried to get one when the Orange Line bus opened in Chatsworth last year but they ran out.

    • Hi Marc;

      Please go to this link and select “Orange Line” in the right-hand tab–there is plenty of info about each installation. Does that suffice or do you want a hard copy?

  2. Metro deserves it. They have a fantastic marketing department that is unfortunately under appreciated by upper management.

  4. Not judging just by this latest example, but many other materials over the years, LACMTA marketing Dept. is excellent. They deserve praise.
